She was Heather Steele, 53, from Carrickfergus, Co Antrim.
Ms Steele was the 52nd person to die on the province’s roads in the first seven months of this year – four short of the total for 2013 of 56 deaths.
She lost her life after two cars were involved in the smash on Carrick’s Belfast Road shortly before 8 pm on Wednesday evening.
Two men were been taken to hospital following the crash, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The Belfast Road, which had been closed while the PSNI examined the scene, has now been reopened.
Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to ring police on the non-emergency 101 number.
At the start of this year, a television safety campaign called Road To Zero was launched to try and cut the carnage on the roads.
Supt David Moore said in January: “If everyone slowed down, did not drive after drinking or taking drugs, wore a seatbelt and drove with greater care and attention, then more people would live.
“It really is that simple.”
